: hello. thank you, ben come your breath of fresh air. i wholeheartedly agree about barack obama being the first fully media trained president. in mountlake, i think he calls them plays cards such the people disassociate him from his policies. in that regard, you were speaking on syria. i am wondering whether this relates to hillary clinton and benghazi. he is creating a story in the public that these issues are more complicated than people realize, that coming up with decisions is difficult and therefore they couldn't have made any other choices. that way he can paint people on the right who want it to look at the facts and factual accounting portrayed as racist who just want to bring down the first but president. >> guest: i think there is truth to that. the idea president obama has avoid culpability is eminently true. when it comes to benghazi, there's a lot we don't know, including the president's own actions. we also don't know what is going on at the cia annex and benghazi. that is information we have to find out. information is clear that president obama's middle eastern foreign

, thanks. as we await for the rollout redo to unfold, critics say president obama still has a long way to go before he can convince americans that his signature legislation is actually working. our chief correspondent joins us live with more. good to see you. >> good afternoon. it's not just the fox news poll taken in the second week of november that finds 55% of registered voter disapproving of president obama's job performance these days. that figure actually rises in more recent polls of registered voters and americans overall taken by cbs news and cnn. it is pretty much the same in surveys taken over the last week. gallup reported recently the president's rating as a strong leader, honest, trustworthy and effective manager, dropped in each of those categories by 5 to 6 points since september. >> it's hard to sit opposite you, mr. president, and say this. but a lot of the criticism, it's personal. >> yes. >> people just don't think they're trustworthy. >> i don't think that's true, barbara. the truth of the matter is that i got re-elected in part because people did think i was trust
